Sanborn Maps for Elkhart, IN
« on: March 09, 2011, 03:36:48 PM »
I have several dozen photographs that are more business related than railroad.  While I know where a lot of them are, some are gone to history.  I would like to figure out their locations for posterity and future generations.  The railroad/traction pictures I have been posting in the historical section. 
While I grew up in Elkhart; I now live in Minnesota, so access to a Sanborn map for Elkhart isn't going to happen at my local library. 
Does anyone have access to an Elkhart Sanborn map that could send one to me?  I would be willing to cover your costs.

Around here, the state university libraries have public access to the entire digital Sanborn collection. That means all states and cities that have been digitized (so around 95% of them all). You might want to check that out if you have one you can get to.
